"Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation."

"Dr. Dubin graduated from The University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey and then completed a residency in Emergency Medicine. Disenchanted with treating patients with medication, he researched Neurofeedback and found improvement in his own brain physiology. DirectNeurofeedback is a low-strength electric current that's effective in reducing the symptoms of anxiety, depression, traumatic brain injury, PTSD, addiction, and ADD/ADHD. It sends a tiny, imperceptible signal to the brain that causes a slight fluctuation in brainwaves. This fluctuation allows the brain to reorganize itself and get out of frozen, stuck patterns, like re-booting a frozen computer."
